Why does Howard from the other side want Howard from this side (whose wife has been in an accident) to be with him?
In S01E02 Birds of a Feather, he demands it in conversation with Quale.
I want him with us.
Even his counterpart Howard asks the same question.
Howard (from this side): Why am I a part of this? You demanded that I be there today. I-I don't understand why I'm involved in any of this.
Howard (from other side): I don't know, Howard. Maybe I'm trying to help you.
Howard (from this side): And why is my perceived well-being so important to you?
